Brookfield Central soccer, Brookfield East soccer

If you wanted to see some good soccer, you should have been at the Brookfield Central-Brookfield East match on Tuesday night at East.

The student sections were packed on both sides - and loud as well - but the middle of the section was emptier than it should have been.

It was interesting to see the Spartan fans in bright red and the Lancer fans in blue while the East team was in white and the Central squad in black.

The Lancers continued their mastery over the Spartans - who always seem to be ranked higher - as Central coach Jon Mroz, decked out in a sharp wide lapeled suit and a newsboy hat, said his team has not lost to East in the regular season since 2005 (East has beaten BC in the post-season).

Central won, 2-1, in a thriller, as the talent on both teams was fun to watch. The speed, the passing ability, the footwork and the defense, is rare to see on both sides of the ball.

Sophomore Stuart McBain has been a pain in the (fill-in) to East, as he scored the winning goal in the final seconds of double overtime last year as a freshman and then made a beautiful stop on a long pass and in the same motion kicked the ball to assist on Matt Merz' winning goal.

East coach Herbie Dundun, who spoke in quieter terms to the media than he did to his team, was disappointed, of course, but he also realized that he didn't have much time to dwell on it with Marquette on the horizon.

The Lancers now have the inside track to the Greater Metro title with only Menomonee Falls and West Allis Central on the schedule.

And it will only get better in the post-season.
